Using horticulture as a catalyst for community engagement, KNOX forges partnerships between residents, businesses, and government, providing leadership to build stronger, greener, healthier and more beautiful neighborhoods in Hartford, CT.
We’re thrilled to announce that KNOX’s AmeriCorps program, Green Crew AmeriCorps, is expanding its use of the America Learns Network to measure its impact, build institutional memory, and to create a robust learning community among its AmeriCorps members.
Green Crew AmeriCorps is an innovative youth conservation program that provides green jobs training and career counseling to Hartford’s out-of-school young adults. Corpsmembers take part in year-long horticultural training and life skills workshops before advancing to further educational and employment opportunities. Check out this video about their work!
